En Route

The aches of leg and back soothed by the deep leather of a fireside couch. Recovering from the continuous alternation from punishing moguls to swift chairlifts and back to powderous trees, groomed expanses and doggie bags of trail mix.

It’a all too picturesque to fathom. Every once and a while something extraordinary would poke out – contrails in the sky, particular arrangements of skiers across the valley, etc – that would merit the grabbing of camera.

The big challenge is remembering what wasn’t documented. Of the couple dozen runs taken, which will stick out? Which will resonate years from now? Will any of the spectacular views stick, or has my brain been wired to remember only that which is supported by cold hard visual records? Does it matter? Is the short term pleasure of it all really the greater point?

Skiing, shuttling to airports, redeye flights back home, composition of argumentative analytical essays.
